I've been stuck for so long, losing a pound or two and gaining it back after a week or two. The doctor's recommendation of giving me the permission to cheat twice a week is not helping at all. I now cheat more than I ever did before. Three to four days a week going over my new suggested calorie range instead of the once or twice a week from before, of course his suggested goal range is lower but I still have gone over by as much as 500 - 700 calories. This has to stop! I must start losing weight again and soon!
The appointment for my gyn visit is set. I have just under 6 weeks to lose about 10#. It's the same 10# I've been working on since December. I WILL NOT go on HRT. I must get my will power strong again. I must eat my freggies. I must walk 5 miles a day. I must do my 3-5 minutes of alternating strength training each day. (The doctor suggested 1 minute of a single exercise each day, rotated from a list of 14- I must print up my list of exercises and not rely on my memory)
Of course since losing my job my steps have gone from about 9000 -just under 4.5 miles per day average to 6000 -just under 3 miles per day average. That's a mile and a half less walking each day. That's around 150 less calories burned per day, meaning that will cause me to gain an extra pound every 3 weeks unless I get this back under control.
I will drive to the track while out running errands and walk around it 6 times in the outside lane before coming back home. That will give me an extra 1.75ish miles.
I will write up my list of exercises and post it where I do most of my exercising.
I will check the store to see if they have batteries for my digital kitchen timer. (I know there is a stopwatch function on my FitBit but I too often forget to hit stop when I am done with a workout.)
I will make one high freggie smoothie for my lunch.
I will figure this out pronto.
